THANK YOU BOBBY for such an engaging, FUN ride around Munich!! Your wit and style as a guide's priceless!
Great ride with Mr. Hunter, Awesome stories he had to tell about Munich in a very interesting way. At times, very emhaticallly he stressed we Bravarian are disposed as such and onother time he would gleefully say, we Americans. It was funny to see how artfullyhe navigated two sides of the character.
This is the only way to tour Munich. Our tour guide was Caleb and he did an incredible job. The English Garden was the highlight of the tour, what an amazing park. We enjoyed lunch at the Chinese tower beer garden. We touched on some of the historical sites of the third reich and learned about the post war rebuild. I highly recommend this as a start to your visit. It will get you acclimated to the city and you will learn a great deal. If you are luck you will get Caleb as your tour guide. My family of six enjoyed every minute of the tour and the bike ride was not at all rigorous. I can not imagine a better tour of Munich.
Our Bike Tour in Munich was outstanding. Kevin, our Guide provided a terrific historical perspective on Munich and then very comfortably showed us the amazing sites and locations in Munich. It was a very memorable and very fun event. Well worth the price!
